    About

    Led and curated by singer-songwriter/violinist Carrie Rodriguez, Laboratorio is an annual four-part concert series hosted at the State Theatre in Austin, Texas. It is an immersive live performance experience that celebrates and explores Latine culture through world-class musicianship, visual arts, and storytelling. Each show features the all-star Laboratorio house band, led by Rodriguez, collaborating with different guest artists.

    This Edición Clásica of Laboratorio will feature two highly lauded classical musicians: operatic vocalist Claudia Chapa and cellist Bion Tsang. In collaboration with Carrie and the Laboratorio band, Chapa and Tsang will be performing the music of some of Mexico’s greatest composers including works by Manuel Ponce, Agustin Lara, Cuco Sánchez y muchos mas. Arrangements will be by Laboratorio band member and composer, Peter Stopschinski.

    This project has been funded in part by the City of Austin’s Live Music Fund Event Program.
